A new project can transform the humble Raspberry Pi into a media center in a rather simple manner. The Pi can access both locally stored data and data stored in the cloud.
Alex Alderson,

The French startup MMPhygital has published EasyDK (Easy Digital Key), an open-source and Python-based cloud media platform. Brought to our attention by CNX Software, MMPhygital has developed EasyDK for Raspberry Pi 3 and 4 single-board computers (SBCs).

MMPhygital has based EasyDK on Raspbian firmware image, and has integrated Chromium with DRM support, its in-house totemhomeplugin, AnyDesk and the flask interface Python development framework. There are also multiple common packages for Bluetooth and networking. You can view the source code here.

EasyDK supports live streaming, a smartphone-based BLE/IP remote control and can be used to deploy a secure 4K or Wi-Fi access point from your Raspberry Pi. EasyDK can also stream local content stored on wireless external hard drives. It supports cloud storage too through MMPhygital's cloud management software, for which the company provides 2 GB of free storage. 

While EasyDK is free to use and open-source, MMPhygital offers premium subscriptions should you wish to use its cloud storage platform. You can download EasyDK from here.
